This week at CPC November 4, 2018

Sunday, November 4: Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper

   9:00 a.m.  Contemporary Worship children remain in worship with their family

   10:10 a.m.   Adult Education What’s So Amazing About Grace? with Philip Yancey, adult ed room

   10:45 a.m.  Traditional Worship 

This Sunday we celebrate All Saints’ Day by calling the roll of the saints: the names of church members, loved ones, and friends who have passed from this life, through death, and to new life with God in the last year. With faith we claim for them the sure and certain hope of resurrection. You are invited to bring a framed photo, 5×7 or smaller, of a friend or loved one who is now with the Lord to be part of the Dia los Muertos decoration in the sanctuary (thanks to Rocio Middleton for preparing it). After worship you are invited to light a candle in memory of a loved one outside the sanctuary on the patio or lawn.

Worship this Sunday at both services will open with the hymn The God of Abraham Praise, sung to a Hebrew melody, in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of the Jewish Cooperative of San Diego next door and with the Jewish community across our nation.

Fall 2018 Sermon Series: In Search of a Soul in which we follow Jesus “on the way” in the gospel of Mark, seeking to live as people with a soul: open to a deeper reality, looking for something more, and ultimately connected to the Lord and Giver of life. Complete series listed below.

    Scripture this Sunday: Revelation 21:1-6

    Sermon: In Search of a Soul: Celebrate Life!

Can the Disney film Coco, Paul McCartney, and the last book of the Bible shine any light on what comes after this life? Yes, they can!
